Print your Word document on one page

If you have a letter or some other document you typed in Microsoft Word 97 or 2000, and you want to print it on a single page then this tip will save you some time and frustration.

Before I discovered this feature, I would adjust the margins, shrink the font and make other formatting changes to make my letters fit on one page. Thankfully, one of the more useful additions to Word 97 and Word 2000 is the ability to shrink a document to one page automatically. Here’s how.

[inline:1] 1. Type and edit your document as normal
2. Click on File, then Print Preview
3. Click on the “shrink to fit” icon
4. Click on the Print icon (see above)

This tip works well as long as you don’t have too much extra text on the second page.
